Good work Yasch22 and Sonbuster!  I like where you're going with this.  There certainly does seem to be an interesting connection here.  We talk about Apple being the King and before Apple it was MS but really before Apple just hit the top there was Sony and now Sony/Ericsson.  As you point out Sony is ranking low with its Android system.  I think patenets are a huge issue here.  Take a look at this article where Nordberg says Sony is patent safe but read the end where he states Google better play fair with its Motorola acquisition of patents.  Perhaps Google is not playing fair and now Sony is aligning themselves with BB.  Very, very interesting stuff.
